Are you tired of staying indoors all the time? Is the pandemic just wearing you down? Why not check out this Social Distancing Bucket List! This list has great ideas of things you can do alone or as a family that is still perfectly safe with social distancing but tons of fun. We all need just a little something new to keep us occupied these days, and this is ideal!
Social Distancing Bucket List
If you’ve never been geocaching, it’s a great way to get outdoors but still be socially distanced. This fun idea gives you GPS settings to find a hidden item. Depending upon the locations and people adding them, so are just a place to find and take a picture for an app, and others have a “take something and leave something” policy where you need to drop something off and take what was left by the last person. It’s excellent to do with kids and creates a fun way to get to know your community.
Crochet or Knit Items for Homeless
If you can knit or crochet, you’ll love this idea. You may even want to learn just for this! Take some time to make mittens, scarves, hats, sweaters, or even just a few little items like coasters, placemats, washcloths, and dishcloths. They can be donated for individuals or to use at a homeless shelter or women’s shelter in your community.

Do a No Electronics Weekend
Put aside the phones, computers, and even the game systems and televisions. Instead, focus on getting outside to work in your yard or even just go for a hike.
